1 1/4 cups
packed brown sugar
1 (8 ounce) package
1 (21 ounce) can
cherry pie filling
I made some changes to this recipe,
I used 1 c. walnuts
1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. butter flavored crisco (I didn't have butter)
1/2 c. coconut
for the filling I used 2 8oz. pkgs cream cheese
2/3 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 can of cherry pie filling
for the crust I combined flour, brown sugar and cut in the crisco, then added the nuts and coconut, reserving 1/2 c. of this mixture for the top. pressed remaining into a buttered 9x13 pan. and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, then beat the cream cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla until smooth and spread over the hot crust, bake for another 15 minutes, top with the cherry pie filling and reserved topping and return to oven and bake for another 15 minutes. It's delicious and is enough for a big crowd. everytime I make it I goes fast.
Must refrigerate & serve cold. It's more like cheesecake bars...THE BEST!!!!
This is definitely a keeper. I doubled the cream cheese mixture so the filling would be thicker. They taste like cheesecake. I might try another topping next time as well, but then again, I might not. I love cherries on cheesecake... so why change?
Another KEEPER, I made it in a 7x12 pan and the bottom crust was just fine. I will do as one other person said and use blueberries for topping, just for a change.
Thsi is a real crowd pleaser. We've been making this for 25 years. It is more that 4 servings!
This is a qick, tasty dessert. We liked it best served "as is" with no extra ice cream or whipped cream. Try blueberry pie filling for a change.
This was very tasty. I used pecans instead because I do not care for walnuts too much. Yum yum!
The crust amount needs to be doubled in order to cover the bottom of the pan, and sprinkle on top. I also doubled the cream cheese portion. Very good flavor with the walnuts.
